Default Good things to do after getting dumped?

So I was dumped 10 days ago, I won't go through all the details but it was pretty awful. Anyways, since then I've been running 8 miles a day, reading a bit, and submitting a lot of job applications. I'm down to 200 lbs from 212, which is great. Just trying to keep my mind on other things. I've started the ol' online dating and have a few coffee dates set up and I've reached out to an old fwb for the obvious. The worst part is we have an apartment together and the lease doesn't expire until March, but she graduates college in December, so hopefully she bails at that point. Was curious if anyone has any good suggestions on things to do to keep busy. It's been tough. Thanks

1. lift weights
2. exercise
3. don't socially isolate
4. don't binge drink
5. go no contact with ex. Delete her number, block her on social media-EDIT: just saw you live with her so can't really do that.

6. hang around with supportive people who have your back


If she lives with you, why would she dump you? What is she thinking? This will be tough but don't let her break you. ISH got your back. Get fit and exercise and do cool shit.

She will get jelly and want you back as soon as she realizes you're banging dimes. By then, you won't even want her back.

Don't get fit to take revenge on her. Get fit for you. Your whole life will improve, and your confidence will grow the healthier and more in shape you become.

6 months after I was single, I was a beast from the weights...

That'll make you get over her real quick.

Working out seems to be a trend here. Like I said I've been running like a nut. 8 miles every day and it's starting to pay off. I should do the weight lifting too, I have a gym membership, might as well make use of it. I've never really worked out much at least with weight lifting, any advice on that, starting out? I've thought about deleting her from facebook and things of that nature, but I think it's probably best to just unfollow her and not look at her profile? She is my roommate so I have to be around her/in contact at least a minimal limit.

A) That sucks and is awkward.

B) Delete her from everything....but not if you all live together. That's weird. If you didn't live together, then I'd say absolutely, erase her from your phone and don't even tempt yourself.

The sooner you establish a new 'routine' that doesn't include her, the quicker you'll get over it.

How hard is it to get someone to take over your part of the lease so you can move out? I'd make that move as soon as you get a new job. Sounds like you need to save money as well if you're broke.

I've never been in your weird situation or known others but I'd be surprised if you don't end up having sex again with her before she moves out.

If it is a one bedroom make her sleep in the living room

Then talk to her as little as possible and bring as many girls as possible back to the apartment
